Whether you are in recovery or simply looking to improve your life, Edward Bear's latest "Tyler tape" will show you how to overcome your outwardly centered needs and concentrate on the inner work of healing and growth.The Seven Deadly Needs is the sequel to Edward Bear's previous work "The Dark Night of Recovery." Set in a conversational format, the book is written as a series of tape-recorded sessions between a mentor, Tyler, and his somewhat resistant pupil, Edward Bear. Each session deals with one of what Tyler calls the Seven Deadly Needs: the Need to Know, to Be Right, to Get Even, to Look Good, to Judge, to Keep Score, and to Control. Because these needs are outwardly focused, they force us to act in ways that are not true to ourselves, and often lead to addiction, isolation and unhappiness. This book will help guide you around some of the larger potholes in life's often-hectic road.

About the author (2000)

Edward Bear was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Los Angeles. Early adventures included a brief stint in minor-league baseball, too many years in construction, day labor and other dead-end jobs. A correspondence course in engineering landed him a job at Hewlett-Packard, where he was employed for nearly thirty years. Previous publications include several fiction pieces in small literary magazines and journals, a baseball novel and "The Dark Night of Recovery: Conversations from the Bottom of the Bottle." Mr. Bear currently lives high up in the Rocky Mountains with his second wife, plays a vintage Martin guitar, and writes in whatever time the gods and goddesses have left him.
